GS-HP Retain Ring System

GS-HP Retain Ring System


GS-Hydro is the worlds leading supplier of
non-welded piping technology Piping
without Welding. GS-Hydro has over 35
years experience with hydraulic systems
and non-welded connection technology. As a continuum of development
work GS-Hydro brings now out the latest
development of non-welded connection
technology.
GS-Hydros new innovative GS-HP Retain
Ring pipe connecting method allows
piping systems with workings pressures up
to 400420 bar to be assembled without
welding. The GS-HP Retain Ring system
provides a fast and easy method to connect pipes with the highest possible quality
and reliability, completely leak-free with
high levels of joint integrity in the most
efficient manner.

GS-Hydros in-house developed GS-HP


Retain Ring technology continues the
success of Piping without Welding technology and provides now even improved
features with numerous benefits:

Proven, leak-free technology


Simple, reliable and safe
Highest level of fatigue resistance
Intrinsically clean joint
Small space requirement
Easy and fast to install
No hot-work needed
Environmentally friendly

leak-free reliable highest level of cleanliness small space requirement prefabrication fast and easy on-site installation zero-fire hazard

GS-Hydro is the worlds leading supplier of complete non-welded piping solutions, with numerous benefits for a wide range of demanding applications.

GS-HP Retain Ring System

The GS-HP Retain Ring system provides


compact, high pressure joint, in which the
flanges are held to the pipe by solid retain
ring halves which are sitting in a machined
groove on the pipe end. The bonded seal
between pipe faces ensures tight sealing
when tightening the screws. This new
system has been subjected to rigorous
burst and impulse testing. The HP-retain
rings, flanges and screws absorb the axial
forces and shocks. The combination of
retain rings and flanges strengthens the
pipe (at the location of the groove) in such
a manner that connection is stronger than
the pipe itself!
GS-Hydro provides various alternatives
where new HP-system can be used. This
flange system corresponds to ISO 6162-2
SAE J618 bore pattern (6000 psi) for nominal sizes 2432 (1 1/22) and ISO 6164
(350400 bar) bore pattern for nominal
sizes 4048 (2 1/23).

Numerous Benefits to Customers


Worldwide
The GS-HP Retain Ring system can be
used in a broad range of high pressure
piping applications in a wide variety of industries ranging from offshore and marine
to various industrial piping systems. The
new retain ring system is suitable for various media e.g. high pressure hydraulic oil,
lubricating oil fuel oil, sea and fresh water.
This new innovation will provide special
benefits in the most demanding applications like with pipe and hose connections
where hydraulic system and its components are effected by pulsating load,
shocks and constant vibration.
The GS-HP Retain Ring system provides
a proven, reliable and leak-free piping
solution. New design and improved
characteristics lead to a minimised need
for maintenance, repair or replacement of
piping components.
The new innovation is widely patented in
several countries.

The Unique Characteristics of the


GS-HP Retain Ring System
The excellent sealing performance and
very high mechanical strength of new HPinvention has been proven by external testing laboratories. New type of connection
technology allows much higher external
loads and has unique resistance against
external loads.
GS-Hydros HP Retain Ring connection is
the right solution when the final customer
application is using thick wall pipes (wt
> 8 mm) , high working pressures (up
to 400420 bar) and in applications
where the pipe connections are under
specific stress caused by external load,
dynamic impulses and vibration. Because
of freely rotating flange connection and
self-centering sealing element, the GS-HP
Retain Ring connection is easy to install
and certainly leak proof.
